Edited by Erik Molvar
Laguna Wilderness Press has the pleasure of publishing our first title by Erik Molvar: Wyoming’s Red Desert: A Photographic Journey, a 96-page book that contains a vast compilation of scenes from The Big Empty, The Jack Morrow Hills, The Atlantic Rim, Adobe Town, The Powder Rim and The Kinney Rim all comprising of the Red Desert in Wyoming.
Take a photographic tour of the Red Desert, one of the wildest and most enchanting remnants of the American West. Seen through the lenses of some of the region’s most talented photographers, the Red Desert comes alive as a brilliant tapestry of sand, sage and sky.
Here, in one of America’s wildest – and most threatened – landscapes, ancient rituals like the migration of pronghorn antelope play out amid the remnants of pioneer trails and Indian encampments. Visit fabled landscapes like the Boar’s Tusk, Adobe Town, and the Ferris Dunes through spectacular photographs accompanied by snippets of the Old West in the form of tales, lore, and cowboy poetry. It’s a journey across the last of the open range that you’ll never forget.
As with his previous titles, Molvar has collected an impressive array of information and photographs that creates a resource valuable to both the reader in the comfort of their home and those who are fascinated with the Red Desert. You will be hard-pressed to find another book that is such a wonderful blend of incredible photography and informative material.
